Yannick Nézet-Séguin Conductor
Seong-Jin Cho Piano
Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 2
Bruckner Symphony No. 7
Nineteenth-century Austrian composer Anton Bruckner’s faith was pivotal, the anchor of a life too often filled with disappointment, and the mystical nature of that communion shines through in his luminous Seventh Symphony. Philadelphia Orchestra Music and Artistic Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin has won international acclaim for his interpretations of Bruckner’s works, making this a not-to-be-missed musical occasion.
The first course of this musical feast is a charmer, Beethoven’s light-hearted Second Piano Concerto, performed by an artist of “jaw-dropping panache” (Wall Street Journal), the critically acclaimed young pianist Seong-Jin Cho.
